The FEICA 2023 European Adhesive & Sealant Conference and EXPO will take place at the PortAventura Convention Centre in Tarragona, Spain, from September 13-15, 2023.

Indispensable insights into the adhesives and sealants industry will be offered throughout the event; it will also provide a great networking opportunity for formulators, customers, suppliers, distributors, service providers, and members of the academic community. Such global challenges as sustainable growth, new technologies and industry innovation, and how to build opportunities for long-term growth will be discussed.

Day by day, the adhesive and sealant industry is developing more technologies to support a growing world population to live a better life and use the planet’s resources responsibly and efficiently.


Business Forum

The theme for this year’s Business Forum is “Industry Innovation for Sustainable Development.” The Forum will feature highly regarded keynote speakers and will be followed by a panel discussion on “Innovation for Sustainable Development.” The current energy crisis, post-COVID recovery, shrinking market share of EU producers, increasing regulatory pressure, and megatrends such as global competition are all converging upon the business sector simultaneously. In addition, the circular economy has become key to driving value for customers and society. Our industry therefore needs true innovation to sustain itself and grow.

Master Class and Breakout Sessions

The 2023 Master Class, “Transitioning to sustainable raw materials: the mass balance approach,” will explain why this particular chain-of-custody model is so important for our industry to participate in the shift to more sustainable feedstocks.

The Conference Breakout Sessions will provide an ideal environment for industry leaders to find out about the latest challenges facing the adhesives and sealants industry today. 



The Table Top Exhibition (EXPO) provides an opportunity for all producers, distributors, suppliers, and service providers from all over the world, linked to the adhesive and sealant industry, to showcase their latest product innovations and technologies. The EXPO will take place on Wednesday, September 13, from 3:00-6:00 p.m., as a stand-alone event with no conference program taking place during that time. The EXPO will also take place parallel to the conference program on Thursday, September 14 from 8:30 to 5:30 and again on Friday, September 15 from 8:30 to 2:00.
